Lady Lever Art Gallery

The Lady Lever Art Gallery was founded by William Hesketh Lever (1851-1925) and is dedicated to the memory of his wife Elizabeth. The gallery contains the best of his personal art collection. The collections represent the personal taste of the first Lord Leverhulme. He began buying art in the late 1880s to use as advertising for the ‘Sunlight Soap’ brand that he produced. From this modest beginning Leverhulme quickly grew into a discerning collector.

A new permanent display open from 5 July 2008, the Lever the Collector gallery, introduces the man and his collections, telling the story of how he built the gallery. It includes the following themes:

  • The story of Lever – a remarkable man
    Art and advertising
    A great collection
    Collecting from other collectors
    Creation of the Lady Lever Art Gallery
